          Faceted Search provides a navigational structure based on the results of search queries which is completely different from catalog based navigation. Facets are like constraints that can be applied to search results. You can use facets to refine your search by further narrowing down the search results by searching within those results that fulfill a certain constraint. E.g. your search query is: shoe. Now the search may return the results along with possible facets values as defined from search admin. Possible facet values can be like prices, colors etc. So if you select a particular price range or color on the search results page then your results will be further refined based on the selected facet.
